I have been working with some of these guys for almost a year now. I remember when we first got started, Big Sharp and Marcodetc both wanted to drop their own mixtapes so we got started recording right away. Now looking back at that time it is amazing how far we have come and not only that but how much we have all grown individually and as a whole! After the release of Big Sharp's "Collectively Uncollected and Macodetc's "Running Out of Time" we felt on top of the world. In my experience with many artists, after achieving something as great as a ten song mixtape they would lay back, relax and feel proud of what they have done. With these two that was not the case.
Immediately after the release of the mixtapes and the making of a music video for Big Sharp's "Just for the Night" (a song from his mixtape) they just kept going! Not once did either of them slow down and take a break and we were back in the studio recording in only a few weeks. The next big step was to take this music to the local people of Traverse City and that is exactly what we did. With a little hope and a lot of work from myself and Marcodetc (AKA Marco Miranda) we were able to book and put on our very first concert and it went off without a hitch!
The show was amazing and I could only sit back and watch as Marcodetc, Big Sharp, and some of their very talented friends rocked the crowd and made the night one to remember. It truly was an awe inspiring afternoon to watch all of these guys come together and put on one hell of a show and I can not wait for another opportunity to go live again. The only thing I know for sure is that we will have to find a larger venue next time because we sold it out completely and then some!
Don't miss out on the next one because this truly is a movement in a town that sees very little Hip Hop.
